It seems that despite efforts to downplay her commercial prowess, Nicki Minaj just keeps on winning.
The proud maestra of the Multi-Platinum LP ‘Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded‘, the last few months have seen the Rapper enjoy the fruits of her well publicized labor, scoring lucrative deals with Pepsi Co,
Giuseppe Zanotti and MAC.
Now find out why Minaj has even more to smile about this week, below…
Rising six places since last week, her latest single ‘Pound The Alarm’ has now entered the UK Top Ten- set to rise even further next week if its mind blowing sales surge continues in the coming days.
As if that wasn’t enough, its predecessor ‘Starships‘ resides at #19 despite entering the chart 22 weeks ago, making her the first US Female Rapper to enjoy two cuts in the nation’s Top Ten simultaneously and one of the only MCs of any gender to achieve the feat.
All this, as her debut movie ‘Ice Age 4: Continental Drift’ came it at #1 at the US Box Office with a sweet $46 million made domestically and a record breaking $339 million internationally.
The movie helped in part by its all star cast and a US promo campaign which saw the one time waitress take to ‘The Jay Leno Show‘ to endorse the flick.
Fortunately for she and her team the good news doesn’t end there.
Indeed, in its fifteenth week of release, ‘Roman Reloaded’ holds it spot at #25, edging closer to receiving a Platinum certification in the nation where she is the only Female Rapper to enjoy a #1 album.
